Stampin’ Up! High Tide for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBannerI used the Stampin’ Up! High Tide stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and here is the card that I created for it.


Here is the sketch that we’re using this week…I took a few creative liberties with it.  🙂


And my card also works for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #79.


I started by adhering panels from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack (available Jan 4) to a panel of Early Espresso card stock with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel four times and tied a bow and then adhered the panel to an Early Espresso card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped the lighthouse and light images from the High Tide photopolymer stamp set (available Jan 4) in Real Red and So Saffron inks on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then I inked the bird and sand images in Early Espresso ink, stamped them on scrap paper and stamped them around the lighthouse.  I inked the water image in Bermuda Bay ink stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it around the lighthouse as well.


I carefully inked the “shine” part of the sentiment from the High Tide stamp set in Early Espresso ink and stamped it next to the lighthouse, then cut the panel with a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies set.  I adhered the die cut panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish it.


I inked and stamped off the images from the High Tide stamp set in Early Espresso and Bermuda Bay inks and then stamped them on a Very Vanilla card stock panel inside the card.
